On the field and off the field, bartender Jeanine Jewell plays, collecting one-night stands like baseball cards. She doesn’t need a man, except to curl her toes and make her scream. She’s learned the hard way that the one who cares more is the one who gets hurt—and the last thing she can handle is getting hurt, or having anyone discover her shameful secret.
Scoring women is easy for catcher Kirk Kennedy—they don’t call him “Catch and Release” for nothing. He never goes back for a repeat performance. Being traded to a new city is an opportunity for new adventures—until he runs into Jeanine and she refuses to go home with him. Intrigued, Kirk is determined to catch the elusive blonde and keep her to himself. When he proposes a wingman to wingwoman friends without benefits relationship, he’s surprised she accepts.
The no benefits clause soon falls by the wayside when neither Jeanine or Kirk can resist their explosive chemistry together. But despite the sparks between the sheets, they both refuse to acknowledge they’re anything more than friends.
Everything changes when Kirk discovers his past is the one Jeanine is hiding from.
Trigger Warning: The heroine was sexually abused by her foster father and has flashbacks.
Playing Catch is a novel that kept my interest very well. I frequently found myself guessing what could happen next and wondering what happened in the past for the main and secondary characters.
The main characters, Kirk and Jeanine, kept making me think they were crazy due to trying to be each others wingman and wingwomen. From the reader stand point, their chemistry is obvious. I had a feeling that the wingman and wingwomen relationship would end badly. In a way, it does, but it brings them closer together and recognize their own jealousy.
There are many parts in the story that take place that I had not seen coming. Those moments surprised me and kept my interest the most. They move the story along well and create a connection between Kirk, Jeanine, and their pasts.
